Highlights of the 2019 Chrysler 300
With the 2019 model year on the horizon, automakers are starting to release all sorts of details about their upcoming vehicles. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) have started to peel away the veil with Dodge and Chrysler, and most recently came out with the fact sheet for the 2019 Chrysler 300. In its last model year, being discontinued after 2019, there isn’t a whole lot of new to look forward to, but that doesn’t mean the Chrysler 300 is without its highlighted features.
For the 2019 model year, the lineup for the Chrysler 300 are the 300 Touring, 300 Touring L, 300S, 300 Limited, and 300C trims. All trims but the 300C have the option of rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), with the 300C only coming with RWD.
The exterior and the interior still keep some personal style, and one trim gets a whole new look before going out to pasture. Available exterior colors include: Bright White, Ceramic Gray, Gloss Black, Granite Crystal, Green Metallic, Maximum Steel, Ocean Blue, Silver Mist, and Velvet Red. For the interior, there are some pretty inviting colors to choose from: Black, Black/Linen, Black/Caramel, Black/Smoke, Mocha, and Indigo/Linen. A Black Noise wheel finish is now standard on the Chrysler 300S, and Touring trims with the Sport Appearance Package will get the same wheel treatment.
As noted, the Chrysler 300 won’t be seeing a 2020 model year, but just because it’s going out doesn’t mean this sedan isn’t one of glory. The majority of the 2019 Chrysler 300 lineup is powered by a 300hp Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 engine with best-in-class highway fuel economy (30 mpg) thanks to the engine being optimized by variable valve timing (VVT) technology and the class-exclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, standard on every model. All models powered by the V6 engine also come with the segment’s most technologically advanced all-wheel drive system, built with a segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle disconnect system for improved fuel economy.
If looking for more power, then the 2019 Chrysler 300C is the way to go, equipped with a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI, delivering 363 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. Able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in less than six seconds, some may wonder if the fuel economy is any good. Thanks to the Multi-Displacement System (MDS) Fuel Saver Technology and VVT optimization, consumers can still expect 25 mpg on the highway.
The 2019 Chrysler 300C also comes with its own personal attitude. Consumers can find the following features only on the 300C: Platinum Chrome finishes, 20-inch polished-aluminum wheels, a sport mode with paddle shifters, segment-exclusive deep-quilted and perforated Nappa leather seats and door panels, hand-sanded natural pore wood, French accent stitching, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with unique chrome accent ring, and available signature two-tone Indigo/Linen (Mocha also available) for the color of the interior cabin. This is the beat all of the bunch, able to make use of sport mode to instantly transform the Chrysler 300S into a real James Bond kind-of-car with increased engine and throttle responsiveness and firmer steering (Sport mode also available on 300S).
If power isn’t everything, then the 2019 Chrysler 300S has plenty of attitude to spare. Consumers will find paddle shifters and sport mode, performance-tuned suspension, performance-tuned steering, blacked-out exterior accents, Black Noise wheels, leather-wrapped sport seats, and exclusive Piano Black interior accents when choosing the Chrysler 300S. Not to mention, an available signature nine-speaker Alpine Audio system with surround sound and a trunk-mounted subwoofer is an option to check out if choosing the 2019 Chrysler 300S.
All Chrysler 300 models powered by a V6 engine have the option to ride with RWD or AWD thanks to a segment-exclusive active transfer case and front-axle disconnect system that seamlessly transitions between RWD and AWD with no driver intervention. If looking for safety, the Chrysler 300 offers a 360-degree perspective when opting in for the SafetyTec Plus Group. This package includes Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus, Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus with Full Stop, Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection, and more.
